What is IUI?
IUI stands for Intrauterine Insemination. IUI donor sperm has been prepared by washing the fresh ejaculate to remove the seminal plasma prior to freezing.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure that places sperm past the cervix and in a woman’s uterus around the time of ovulation. This makes the passage to the fallopian tubes much shorter, and there is a better chance that more sperm will encounter the egg. The goal of this procedure is to improve a woman’s chance of getting pregnant.ASRM is an excellent resource for reproductive facts.
